Wonderful Holiday Gift: Chocolate and Peanut Butter Cookie Bark

December 01, 2010

Holiday cookie baking has begun, and last week I taped some television food segments for NBC 13 “Daytime Alabama”. One will air in December on “holiday food gifts. I couldn’t decide between a cookie and a bark type dessert, so I decided to combine the two in Chocolate and Peanut Butter Cookie Bark. This recipe combines scharffenberger chocolate, pecans and peanut butter chips. It’s incredibly easy and fabulous!

Come join the fun at the My Baking Addiction and GoodLife Eats Holiday Recipe Swap sponsored by Scharffen Berger.

This is one of the best things I have baked in forever. It is so good. I ate a ton of it so I ended up giving it to a friend in fear of eating it all. That good. Thanks for sharing. Taking some home for xmas that I set aside.
